Sister Dalton welcomed all of saying, "wherever two or three are gathered, there will I be also."
The General YW Board took turns teaching us.
Quite a bit of time was taken to show us LDS.org and all the amazing teaching and learning tools at our fingertips:
Youth.LDS.org is a youth specific site with downloadable music, excerpts from talks and conferences, Mormon Ads, videos etc. Also, a LDS Youth App is available.
2011 Resource Guide is designed to accompany Manual 3. There are many extra teaching tools on the sidebars. For example: Discussion questions, Words of the Prophets, Conference talks, Personal Progress goals and videos to download.
We are given these resources to teach the gospel as the Savior would if He were here.
regardless of how we use these other resources, the Spririt must be present for meaningful learning and teaching to occur.
Also, there will be a Leadership Training Library online.
We were counseled to read our patriarchal blessings and recognize the gifts we have been given; read the first chapter in the handbook.
The YW we are leading are noble and great. They have testimonies in their hearts. But our YW are getting the message from the world that external measurements are more important than internal goodness. We must help them see through that lie. We must encourage them to live the gospel.
- The work is all about the Savior (Helaman 5:12).
- We must provide opportunities for the youth to have experiences with the Spirit.
- Teach the youth yo listen for the promptings of the Spirit.
- LOVE-LOVE-LOVE the young women. There is not one young woman who cannot be reached if her leaders have that kind of love for her.
